Architecture education is failing to understand how technology is changing our cities says Keiichi Matsuda, who foresees that the profession will split into two parts thanks to digital advances. The ubiquity of laptops and smartphones means the old architectural maxim that form follows function “doesn’t exist any more,”  Matsuda adds, since building users now carry functionality with them as they move around the city. This is fundamentally changing the requirements of buildings, Matsuda believes, and will ultimately cause ruptures in the architecture profession.
